IOE funding expands mental health support for BVSD students and staff
So far this school year, we’ve raised over $800,000 to support the ongoing mental health needs of students and staff throughout the Boulder Valley School District.
The success of BVSD students sometimes requires more than our schools and teachers are able to provide during the day, and this is where we step in. In times of crisis or emergency we are agile and strategic in our response, finding where we can best support the needs of the Boulder Valley community.
Over 900 students and 100 educators in the Boulder Valley School District were displaced by the devastating Marshall Fire on December 30, 2021.
Students and educators impacted by the fire found themselves facing the financial impacts and trauma of losing their homes, being displaced, losing their belongings, and seeing their community forever changed.
When the COVID-19 pandemic caused schools to close on March 13, 2020, education as we knew it was flipped upside down.
Many families rely on our schools for much more than learning. When schools closed, these students immediately needed nutritious food at home and internet and devices to access remote learning. As students returned to school, supporting supplemental instruction to help students catch up on learning became a priority as well.
